Facebook uses fact-checkers to censor speech they disagree with. These fact-checkers (Lead Stories, Snopes, Politifact, Factcheck.org, Science Feedback) are often biased and unprofessional people. Many of them are just losers who dropped math in grade 9, and partied their way through journalism “school” while half drunk.
The Post Millenial explains:
On Friday, it was revealed that the co-founder and CEO of the popular fact-checking site Snopes David Mikkelson has been writing articles using plagiarized content under a pseudonym for years.
A Buzzfeed News investigation found that Mikkelson wrote and published over 50 articles containing plagiarized material between 2015 and 2019.
“After inquiries from BuzzFeed News, Snopes conducted an internal review and confirmed that under a pseudonym, the Snopes byline, and his own name, Mikkelson wrote and published 54 articles with plagiarized material,” wrote Buzzfeed.
As a result from Buzzfeed’s findings, Mikkelson has been suspended from editorial duties “a comprehensive internal investigation.” According to Buzzfeed, Mikkelson remains an officer and a 50 percent shareholder of the company.
“Our internal research so far has found a total of 54 stories Mikkelson published that used appropriated material, including all of the stories Buzzfeed shared with us,” Marchionni and Snopes Chief Operating Officer Vinny Green said in a statement.
These are not honest people, who can do useful work in a competitive free market. They’re talkers. Not doers.
I’ve written about Snopes and Politifact before. Check out the articles, so you can understand how seriously Facebook takes “fact-checking”.

I only trust direct sources at this point. Everything else could be from anywhere haha
And another one bites the dust. We’ve been praying for some years that liberals who harm us, the people and nation, be exposed, that all ungodly protection be wiped out. God is glorious.
One thing that disgusted me was, in a conservative news media, many made gross remarks about his wife. Why attack her when she’s innocent of his ugly behavior?
